British Nordic Walking Challenge Series


Nordic Walkers will be coming from all over the UK to meet up at Ashton Court Park on13 July to take part in one of our new Nordic Walking challenge series events. These dedicated Nordic Walking events are off road and a chance to meet other Nordic Walkers from all over the UK.

Nordic Walkers can choose between 5km, 10km and 20km routes around this beautiful estate; 850 acres of glorious undulating parkland. Just challenge yourself to complete the distance, or log your time and go for a personal best! Ashton Court is a great location to show off all that we know that is great about Nordic Walking. With the 'deer park', cafe, Mansion House, car parking and sprawling grounds, there is something for all the family, so why not encourage your Nordic Walking groups to make a day of it.

From Brunel to Banksy, Bristol has much to offer its visitors; Brunel’s world famous Suspension Bridge and the SS Great Britain at the Harbourside are only 20 minutes away from Ashton Court.
